The start of the night

Its Saturday so it must be time to shop.  We headed downtown to Century 21 stopping at ground zero on the way.  Its strange - a big expanse of open space in the middle of the concrete jungle.  I spent huge amounts of money then met up with Kirsty & Megan for lunch and to compare purchases. 

In the evening about half of the secondees headed to a club called Manahatta.  Upstairs was like a bar but downstairs was more clublike with a huge dancefloor.  I generally don't do dancing but as everyone else was I felt forced to even though it makes me feel really awkward.  Some of the firm staff were there too including a Scottish guy called Geoff who had just startded working there.  He spent a lot of time telling me how I would soon forget all about my boyfriend back home and was free to do whatever I liked whilst I was here.  What is he talking about?! Later in the night Stefan came over to sya that he thought I was a bit stuck up at the beginning week, but actually I seem like a fun girl.  I apologised for not being very talkative and expalined that I'm just really shy!  After a bit of talking and dancing he asked me to go back to his with him.  I told him no at which point he went home in a huff.  Great!  Me & the other girls finally headed home around 3:30am.
